    Amazing documentary. These people look so much like actors it's hard to believe this was real. 5/5.

    1917

    Saw this movie on the fly. As an artistic war movie, it works just fine. As a shoulder-to-shoulder with Black Hawk Down or Saving Private Ryan, it does not work at all. Even though parts of the movie were linear with two soldiers running through trenches, the power of the story and the outcome for the two heroes who are running for their lives to save an entire division of soldiers, who are advancing from the safety of their trenches into a deadly trap. Yes, I had mixed emotions about the movie; it lacked the realistic battle scenes of Black Hawk and other war classics; however, it ascended nicely with the remarkable heroism of its main character, who completed his mission, took a final insult from his commanding officer, and rested by himself, joyous that he was still alive. This is sort of a date movie.

    Very disappointing. No character building. Big names had such a small part - they didn't even need to be in it except to sell the movie. Some parts didn't make sense - no one around and there's a bucket of fresh milk!!!!! What was that about.

    Yet another terrible ALIEN rip-off (can we finally stop with these??? It's been FORTY years!) with yet another atrocious performance by Stewart, the worst actor ever.

    Just Mercy

    "Just Mercy," is a movie that captivated my attention. It is a truth that pains, yet, a truth that needs to be recognized and remembered. The movie reminded me of the lives that were sacrificed for justice. It also reminds me of the courageous men and women who fought for justice and who prevailed in their effort. "Just Mercy" deserves the attention and recognition of the Oscar for best picture in 2020!

    Knives Out

    Ana was terrific in this role, an award performance. Love that the movie kept your mind in a workout to guess who, what and where the mystery unfolds with surprise twists and some laughter.
